A Mans Best Friend!

With 54 million people in the UK having pets its no surprise that we come across quite a few potential tenants who don't want to leave them behind while renting. We have a few top tips to consider when looking for a property to suit.

Being a dog loving office, here at Belvoir we understand how important it can be to take your pets with you when you move home. We also understand that sometimes tenants feel they have to "jump through hoops" in order to achieve this.

 

Meet Ralph! Ralph is the newest member of our team and spends most days helping us out in the office. Other activities include sunbathing on the sofa, greeting tenants and barking at the postman!

 

With 54 million people in the UK having pets its no surprise that we come across quite a few potential tenants who don't want to leave them behind while renting. We have a few top tips to consider when looking for a property to suit.

 

  • Be honest - when starting your property search it is important for us to know all the facts. These include what type of pet, breed, age, whether he or she is house trained and a brief background. We can then put this forward to the landlord, the more details we know the better. A reference from a previous landlord can also help.
  • Pet deposit - Some landlords will insist on a pet deposit of £200. On vacating the property, the tenant will show that carpets on all levels have been professionally steam cleaned by a professional company to remove all animal hairs and odours.
  • If you have already moved in to your property and decide you may like a pet, please do check with your landlord or agent before purchasing. Failure to do so can mean you are in breach of your tenancy agreement.
  • Take time off - Moving house can be stressful for your pets especially dogs and can lead to adverse behaviour such as excessive barking and chewing. Taking a few days off to settle them in can be very beneficial in the long run.

A study by Dogs Trust showed that 53% of UK landlords are willing to rent to tenants with pets given the right circumstances, so if you're having problems give us a call on 01926 422251 and we will do our very best to accommodate you.

 

Good luck with your search!
